Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular ways to improve your appearance. From teeth whitening to the ability to shape your gum line and close unwanted spaces between your teeth, the options for cosmetic dentistry are seemingly endless.
But how do you know when it’s the right time for you to look into cosmetic dentistry? Let’s take a look at a few of the ways you can tell that it’s time for you to consider cosmetic dental procedures.
If you’re missing teeth
If you’re missing teeth, like quite a few Americans above the age of 30 are, then you’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Dental implants are far and away the most popular method for replacing missing teeth, for a number of reasons. Implants last longer than dentures, are far more comfortable, and they look, feel, and act just like normal teeth.
You have unsightly fillings
If you’ve had a cavity in a tooth that’s prominent in your smile, and it wasn’t done in the past decade or so, then chances are it’s a dull gray color that doesn’t match the rest of your smile. Luckily, the days when you had to have ugly gray filings are gone. Thanks to advances in dental technology, dentists can offer tooth-colored fillings if you need them in teeth that show in your smile. If you currently have gray filings, you can get them changed to tooth-colored ones.
If you’re thinking about changing your smile, you should schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Maria Boutsikos, DMD here at Dynamic Dental Smiles as soon as possible. You can reach us today at 941-549-8930.
